Liam Gallagher has claimed his brother Noel “has been called many times” to discuss the possibility of an Oasis reunion.
“Our kid has been called many times about getting the band back together, it just so happens that this time he wants it when he’s got an album out.
The way I see it, it ain’t happening. I won’t be calling him and he’ll be calling me. He split the band up on his terms and I’ll be getting it back together, on my terms. I’m a reasonable person, but I’m very good friends with the universe and we have ways of making it happen because it’ll come down to him calling me.”
Former Oasis rocker Noel Gallagher recently addressed the rumours of a potential Oasis reunion alongside brother Liam Gallagher following comebacks for Britpop rivals Blur and Pulp. Britpop rivals Blur and Pulp will be returning to the stage in 2023, with the former also releasing a new album on July 21.
Noel Gallagher opens up on the matter
Noel Gallagher recently talked about the prospect of an Oasis reunion in the future. The beef between the Gallagher brothers, Liam and Noel Gallagher is no secret. The split of Oasis certainly shocked the fans back in the day. In 2009, the band parted ways immediately following a backstage tiff in Paris.
Tension had been brewing in the time building up to their scheduled performance at Rock en Seine festival. The weekend prior, Oasis pulled out of headlining V Festival because Liam Gallagher was suffering from laryngitis, and rumors floated about their tumultuous relationship. It was also recently noted that Liam Gallagher has teased starting a new band with his brother Noel Gallagher and his son in a new tweet. This would definitely excite fans. Noel also revealed his price for a reunion.
Noel has been keen to snub talks of a comeback; which was the topic of choice in a recent interview with NME.
“I didn’t know that, but good luck to them! Blur never split up, did they? Pulp never split up, they just went and did other things, which is the adult way of doing it.
“Sadly my f****** band were very far from adult about it. It was a bit more crash and burn.”
Noel was then asked if Oasis had ever been offered to return as some sort of Britpop reunion package alongside their 90s chart rivals, even suggesting on perhaps a cruise.
“Inevitably, it will happen. There’s never really been a serious offer about ‘The Big O’ getting back together, but there you go.”
Things escalated further following Liam’s alleged tweet before Manchester City’s Champions League final against Inter Milan. It read:
“If Man City wins the Champions League, I [will] call my brother and I [will] bring back the f****** band together LG x.”
Man City won 1-0 thanks to Rodri’s second-half strike in Istanbul. So a reunion might be on the cards.
